Maybe you'll laugh at this story:


A couple years ago I woke up got really high, and went to take a walk. I go out side and my car is gone. I freak out, first I knock on all the neighbors doors tell them my car is stolen, have they seen anything. Next I call the police, who tell me to come down and file a stolen car report. So I walk, thee miles to the police, fill out the report. The officer looks at me and says " you know ford escort isnt a catr people steal, especially one from '95" I was really pissed at that remark, "I'm not some idiot, my car has been stolen , even if its a piece of {censored}." I leave pretty indignant. For the next two days, I'm traveling by cab, wasting a {censored} ton of money. Then I get the phone call on day three, the police recovered my vehicle. "where did you guys find it!", officer: "it was parked at the gas station close to your house." Me: "so, some one stole rode it around and basically dropped it off?" Officer: "no sir, the vehicle was locked and the manager called us to complain this car had been parked there for three days. He didn't want to tow it because the owner is a regular, but he hasn't come in." Me "oh". Turns out I had stoped there after work and left the car there. I was on the phone and had just walked home. Well, believe me, my friends and my family have never let me live that one down.I'm a total idiot
:facepalm:

Liability only.


I am a poor person.

 

 

The poor get poorer. Unreal. Mojo sent.

 

I had my car vandalized a couple of months ago. $500 out of pocket and insurance took care of the other $2000. Insurance did not cover the feeling of being violated.

Sorry to hear that man. Hope things start looking up for you. I too would be willing to put a little money towards a new Whores van fund (on the condition that you guys come back to Boston in the near future ;) ).

My mom's old Nissan truck was stolen a couple of years ago. It was an easy mark because it was made before they started putting alarms and other anti-theft systems in cars. The cops founds it a couple of days later on the other side of town. Key lock on the door was jimmied. Ignition lock was popped out. The pipe between the gas tank and the fill coupling was cut (not sure why they did that). Total repairs to get it going again were only about $200. She's now got a "Club" on the steering wheel.

It's damn hard to sell a stolen car these days, and most people wouldn't want to be seen driving one. Unless it's a model that's popular for black market parts then it was probably either someone who needed a ride somewhere, or kids wanting a car to joy ride. Hopefully the former rather than the latter as someone needing a ride would be less likely to trash it before abandoning it.

It'll probably turn up within a few days. Hopefully, the damage won't be too expensive to repair.

That sucks man...About a year ago my car randomly stopped running on the highway (it was a total piece of {censored} anyway) so I got out and started walking to the gas station about a mile away...anyways I came back in a friends car to get my stuff out of it and some asshole had stolen it :facepalm:

The police said it's a new thing, tow truck assholes will drive around and nab any car without people in it. Having a car stolen is seriously one of the {censored}tiest feelings ever, especially if it's your only mode of transportation

Damn dude....I'm really, really sorry. Seems like you've been going through a rough patch. If there is anything I (or we at HCFX) let it be known.

When I get bummed out I like to spend a whole day in the woods, bring some coffee and some easy to prepare food. Sounds weird but it works for me..


And whoever VanHalen is, well he can eat {censored}, seriously what a {censored}er!
